I apparently have sold the Golden Claw, I am not entirely sure where and seem to have lost it. This has stopped me from finishing the quest. I am using the xbox 360 edition

    Instead of editing the xbox-360 tag in and out all day, how about you guys read the meta about platform tags? Specifically, the paragraph that says "Platform Tags are Widely Misused". – Nolonar Mar 26 '14 at 12:37

    I think that was a conflict in editing lol I somehow got an edit through when it was pending – Marriott81 Mar 26 '14 at 12:40
  • There should have been down votes because the claw is a quest item. It can't be dropped. – Jim Oct 18 '15 at 5:59

all you got to do is after you sell it to the guy in the riverwood trade store, just walk out wait about a day (or until morning) go back inside and it should be on the counter in front of him. if you sold it to somone else you have to usually buy it back or it might be gone some traders don't hold the items you sell them. So check every trader you have sold things to.


If you could sell it then probably your quest was completed. The Golden Claw is just for the Golden Claw quest. If you're really stuck and are playing on PC, try this command in the console to finish the quest: setstage MS13 100

    @Marriott81 whether OP is playing on PC or not is irrelevant - this question is for everybody with a similar problem (although noting that the console command is a PC-only solution would be appropriate). – kotekzot Mar 26 '14 at 13:53
  • @kotekzot thats what I was referring too – Marriott81 Mar 26 '14 at 14:00
